I'm pleased to announce that my first, self-published book is now available to buy online! The Communion of Saints: Stories in the Christian Gothic was my final project in my Master of Arts program at Regent College, and it's now my first publication. Featuring five short stories tied together by a frame narrative, the book … Continue reading The Communion of Saints – Out Now!

This is the blog post I've been waiting years to write. There's no need to guess why, I suppose, especially when it's in the title above. I'm a published author. Drive In Tales, a new online magazine edited by Alex Soderstrom, is publishing my story "The Whitehawk Agency" in two parts over two issues. The … Continue reading Published!

It read thus: HAVE MADE FABULOUS DISCOVERY STOP VITAL HAVE TIME TO STUDY STOP STORY NOT READY THIS MONTH STOP WILL WRITE SOONEST STOP REGARDS - A. Be assured I sent a furious reply.

My computer may be having problems, but I haven't given up hope that this project will still come to fruition. Delayed? It's possible. But one way or another, Marvellous Adventure is coming. Stay tuned...
2012 is certainly going to be an interesting year for this blog and for its author. More details will come soon, but for now I will say only this: Marvellous Adventure awaits. In more ways than one. Stay tuned...
It's rather harder to blog than I thought it would be. Finding interesting things to say in what is more or less a public place is difficult. I can't very well write remarks about my private life on here for the eyes of people I'd rather not read such remarks. It's also not a good … Continue reading A Year? Really?
